YOUR EYES..

Itís your eyes that perplex me
They say one thing but I feel they mean another
Sometimes they look at me with a distance
Sometimes they look at me with a softness that quite simply melts my heart
But itís the in-between looks that tell me you yearn to be free
Free to laugh and smile like you used to
Free to take a risk and never count the cost
Free to love again and enjoy the simple moments of being you
Is that why you look at me like you do
Is that why your eyes sometimes linger longer than they should
Do you yearn for a new tomorrow
Do you yearn for a new day
Do you look for someone to give you the answer
Do you look for someone to show you the way
You donít have to look too far as Iím standing very close

Strong words.
Eyes can unveil much more that words can sometimes.
Good stuff.

I like this part, I know how that feels

I have always said the eyes are the gateway
to one's soul.  I truly believe that.

Excellent write,  penned perfectly for
the message,  loved the ending.

Well, Miss Roniece, you are a poet.  And that is what we do, write from the heart.  The pen and the paper are our feelings and emotions and you epitomize poetry.  Your feelings are feelings that, although I cannot speak for all, I can speak for myself in saying I've felt.  Lovely write.  I hope to read more of your heart.

Junior Member,
yv

Roniece:

do you have any idea how insightful this is?

But itís the in-between looks that tell me you yearn to be free

to see those looks . . .
Nice write

(sigh) Oh Roniece, this is beautiful, sweet friend, the eyes truly speak so much and if we can read them like a book then the truth is certainly there! (kiss on cheek) God Bless You, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Roniece, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton
